About this webinar

DNA is the underlying code for human life. Variations in this code result in the physical diversity observed between humans. While some physical traits are determined by just a few variations, many more are governed by several to hundreds of genes. Also, while we might point to one ancestor as the source of a particular trait, in fact many of our traits are determined by contributions from both our maternal and paternal ancestors. The interactions of these gene alleles and their products result in our unique physical characteristics. With chromosome mapping, we can also trace the origins of some of these traits and characteristics.

    Good presentation, but I’m a molecular biologist so the review of molecular biology was wasted on me.

    It was hard to absorb all of the details of the science, so the detailed syllabus should come in handy.

    This webinar was one of the most interesting that I’ve attended or watched. There is so much information to absorb but Mr. Woodbury did an excellent presentation. It’s definitely one that I will need to read the syllabus and watch again! I’m looking forward to watching more of his webinars.
